A television adaptation of the 1980s film American Gigolo is set to drop on Showtime this year. Similarly titled American Gigolo, the series had been developed by David Hollander, who worked on other popular Showtime shows like Heartland and Ray Donovan. Here’s a description of the plot of the series, according to Deadline. “Written and directed by Hollander, the new American Gigolo is a present-day reimagining of the iconic 1980 film. Bernthal plays Julian Kaye, who is introduced 15 years after he’s been arrested for murder and struggling to find his footing in the modern-day Los Angeles sex industry, while seeking the truth about the set-up that sent him to prison all those years ago and also hoping to reconnect with Michelle, his one true love, played by Gretchen Mol (Boardwalk Empire).” While there are current issues with the production of the series, with reports saying that production is currently on pause given Hollander’s recent dismissal from the show, the series still promises an intriguing list of actors, one of whom is a rising action star. If you want to learn more about the actors set to appear in this series, read ahead. Here are the cast members of the upcoming Showtime drama TV series American Gigolo.

Jon Bernthal

Jon Bernthal is set to star in the upcoming Showtime drama series American Gigolo as Julian Kaye. Already a familiar face in action hits on TV, Bernthal came to prominence for his portrayal of Shane Walsh on the hit AMC zombie horror series The Walking Dead. He then took on the role of The Punisher in the MCU, having portrayed the role in Daredevil and The Punisher. Currently, he stars in the HBO miniseries We Own This City. He’s also appeared in comedy shows, working on two episodes of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt.

Gabriel LaBelle

Actor Gabriel LaBelle will be portraying the young Julian Kaye in American Gigolo. The up-and-coming actor can be recognized from his appearances in the movie The Predator as well as the Netflix series Brand New Cherry Flavor. He is set to star in The Fabelmans, a movie by Steven Spielberg that also serves as a semi-autobiographical depiction of his journey as a filmmaker.

Gretchen Mol

Gretchen Mol will be starring alongside Jon Bernthal in American Gigolo, portraying the character of Michelle. Mol is most notably known for her role in Boardwalk Empire which aired on HBO. She also appeared in movies such as Rounders, Celebrity, The Thirteenth Floor, The Notorious Bettie Page, and 3:10 to Yuma.

She didn’t close her doors to the possibility, however. “I feel like for me, it was really of a time,” said O’Donnell, 59. “The time to start a new show for TV now with the social delivery platforms that they have is not a 60-year-old woman. You have to be younger and have the fight in you and be on the cutting edge.” She continued, “I read PEOPLE and I half the time don’t know who’s in it. Imagine the stories that you promote as the big story, like so-and-so and so-and-so had a baby. I’m like, ‘What? Who? From where?’ So I don’t think that I would do it again.” That said, “my career has been so unpredictable that you never know what will happen,” O’Donnell added. “But I think that the time is past for that for me.”
